Use LEGO® to teach kids engineering concepts!

compensation: $17/hour
employment type: part-time

Are you a tinkerer? Do you enjoy taking things apart and then putting them back together? How about playing with LEGO®? Would you like to use a ridiculous amount of LEGO® materials to teach kids how the world works? If so, then this may be your dream job!

Play-Well TEKnologies (http://www.play-well.org) is an educational enrichment company that introduces children in grades K-8 to STEM concepts using LEGO® components.

We are hiring additional smart, creative, dynamic kids' Engineering Instructors to lead our great programs in area schools and community centers throughout the Ventura area including: Thousand Oaks and Oxnard, and the Santa Barbara area including: Goleta and Carpinteria. This part-time position includes teaching daily after-school programs with some weekday morning programs and weekend birthday parties throughout the school year, and full day camp programs during the summer.



Buckle up - this is hard work! Lugging 40 pound totes in and out of your car, leading excited kids through challenging projects, managing classroom conflicts, cleaning up all that LEGO® - this will be the toughest job you'll ever love!

REQUIREMENTS
  • Flexible schedule: availability during 3-5 weekday afternoons a must during school year, availability during some weekday mornings and weekends a plus. Summer months and school holidays availability for full weekday camps.
  • Experience and passion teaching K-8 students in a classroom or summer camp setting.
  • STEAM related coursework or experience a plus but not required - we provide training!
  • Must have a reliable vehicle to transport teaching materials and commute to teaching sites.
  • Secure place to store Play-Well teaching kit.
  • Pre-employment background check is required.
COMPENSATION - new updated pay rate!
  • Part-time: 15 - 20 hours/week (20 - 40 hours/week during summer)
  • Training rate: $15/hour
  • Regular rate: $17/hour
  • Compensation includes drive time, setup and instruction hours
We highly value our teaching staff, and pay for time spent driving to a site that's farther than 30 minutes away. We also pay a 3 hour daily class minimum rather than just the hour or so spent in the classroom.
